Country music singer, Mindy McCready, has been sentenced to a year in jail for violation of her probation.
In July, McCready was arrested after the police were called during a domestic dispute between the singer and her mother. In her mugshot following that arrest a huge and bloody gash can be seen on McCready’s nose which was reportedly caused by a fall while she was resisting arrest.
McCready was convicted of a prescription drug fraud charge in 2004 and sentenced to three years probation. She had a few months left of probation when she was arrested in July.
Now McCready is a convicted felon. In addition to sentencing her to a year in jail, the judge ordered 2 more years of probation and 200 hours of community service for McCready.
In court, McCready reportedly made an emotional plea to the judge, but he didn’t buy it and sent her directly to jail.
